Roasted Pineapple with Honey, Pistachios, and Crème Fraîche
After a whirlwind through Italy and New England, I'm back home. While I get settled and prepare some new posts, I thought today we'd talk pineapple. There's nothing quite like fresh pineapple. I can still remember bringing back a whole one after a high school band trip in Hawaii. So the last time I was at Trader Joe's, I decided to bypass the more convenient (and expensive) pre-cut pineapple for an entire fruit. Cutting it wasn't as difficult as I anticipated- my sharp knife came in handy. This dessert is indulgent, fresh, and simple. It would make a great finale to a dinner party, because not only do the flavors impress, but the presentation isn't too shabby either. I'm looking forward to making this for friends and family.
